The Federation of Narvatus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.01 billion Narvatusians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Usoreum. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Narvatusian economy, worth a remarkable 4,078 trillion ounces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 313,481 ounces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", Narvatus is suspiciously populated compared to its neighbors, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Narvatus's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the holiest freedoms.

Narvatus is ranked 63,285th in the world and 129th in The Free Nations Region for Most Income Equality, scoring 54.33 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
